East meets west at the Sydney outpost of New Zealand fave White + Wong's. This colourful spot located at 25 Martin Place doesn't stray too far from the formula that's made it such a success across the ditch, with an eclectic menu that draws influences from classic street food from China, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Malaysia and Thailand. It's an expansive selection that ranges from noodles and made-from-scratch curries to barbecue-roasted meats and dumplings.
Yes, purists may scoff at the cross-section of regional influences, but the proof is in the proverbial pudding here — since opening its first outpost in Auckland six years ago, it's become one of the most awarded restaurant brands in Aotearoa.
On the menu, you'll find signatures like Fijian-style kingfish sashimi, masterstock fried pork hock with tamarind and chilli caramel, crispy soft-shell crab with Sichuan pepper, Korean fried chicken bao, massaman lamb shoulder curry and deep-fried ice cream with butterscotch sauce. A number of banquet menus are available for groups of four or more, while the popular Feed Me menu is a great way for tables of two or more to sample a selection of dishes from across the menu for $65.
Drinks at White + Wong's are taken just as seriously as the food. Sardine Bar, which is nestled just behind the dining room, boasts a considered wine program which includes French and local sparkling, as well as an excellent selection of whites, reds, rosés and booze-free options. There's also a pan-Asian inspired cocktail menu at this breezy open-air bar plus the option to enjoy a custom-made cocktail tailored to your preference.
Feeling peckish? You can pair your drink with a selection of food from White + Wong's here, too.
White + Wong's is open for lunch and dinner from Monday to Saturday from midday until late.
